In this paper the authors review spherical motion generation by means of parallel manipulators or spherical motors. The state-of-the-art of spherical-motion-generator kinematics, dynamics, design optimization and novel spherical mechanisms with emerging applications are reviewed. New research problems and future developments are discussed.
